Today’s top actually comes from Molly, who signed up for the newsletter but instead of telling me what the best tip I could give her would be, she told me her best tip, and here it is:
Oh, and the pizza I referred to was from A Vegan Affair Event Catering, whose site is not easily linkable but if you go to the gallery you’ll see the mini-pizzas. No money changing hands here, just a plug for someone who gave me some samples, is all.
How do you make your vegan pizza sing? I gave my add-on tips in the video, now share yours in the comments!
1/4 cup oil (olive, Udo’s, canola, whatever you like)
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar (we used white balsamic, red works too)
A pinch of pepper
A pinch of garlic powder
Mix it up in a blender – any blender will probably work, but we use a Vita-Mix, just like we have for the past 13 years or so – we use it almost every day, and if you’d like one you can use code 06-002733 at vitamix.com to get free shipping (and we’ll get a commission which helps pay the bills around here.)
This is a great dressing that you can make in small batches like I did or double it up. I like to keep half the pomegranate to either snack on or throw into the salad as a topping. Pomegranates are cheap this time of year around here, and they’re loaded with antioxidants and other things I don’t pretend to understand beyond the fact that they’re super good for you.
But like I said, be careful opening them up or you will end up with some crazy stains on your shirt!
Seriously, this is one of the easiest ways to learn new ingredients, and it works for beans better than anything else I can think of (I wouldn’t try it with spices, for example) – even the deadest of palates is going to learn something from this with relatively no risk: If you want a great [...]
Apologies for the poor lighting and the lazy camera work (though I think that part’s endearing, frankly) but this is one mighty tasty salad dressing that you all need to make in mass quantities right now: Also, I made this twice, the first attempt was too watery but I mixed the two together and put [...]
Teflex sheets are those things we talked about in the “how to make kale chips” episode that prevent sauces and crumbs from falling through the trays of your dehydrator. They are easy to clean and a pain to dry. At least they were, until I had an attack of the obvious: As I said in [...]
Kale chips are what dehydrators are for, and dehydrators are what kale is for, and there’s an infinite loop in the works here that actually does have an end, which is IN MY BELLY! Seriously, kale chips are crazy delicious, and we make them with a tahini and nutritional yeast-based coating that also works well [...]
We’re back! This week we’re not doing a recipe, but we are going over how to use a valuable piece of the modern kitchen arsenal: the pressure cooker. This thing makes dry beans a real possibility, with 10 minute cooking times instead of the 1-2 hours you’d spend boiling them in a regular pot, which [...]
Sorry for the delay, but as you can clearly see, I needed to get my hair just right! In this eposide, we go through a raw recipe that could also be used as a spread or sandwich filling if you don’t dehydrate it. Ingredients: 2 cups soaked almonds 4 stalks of celery 1 carrot 1/2 [...]
This is the cookie for people who can’t decide on anything, like your host, for example: peanut butter oatmeal raisin chocolate chip. If we put anything else in, we’d legally have to change the name to trail mix. 3 tbsp ground flax seeds 5 tbsp water 3/4 cup sugar 1/2 cup whole wheat flour 1/2 [...]
Most raw recipes I see need a lot of planning so you can soak your nuts (heh heh) in advance and whatnot, but this one can be prepared in a hurry. It tastes better after sitting for a few hours, but it’s still pretty good fresh from the pan. From The Complete Book of Raw [...]
